Liquor restrictions step closer in Broome
Voluntary takeaway alcohol restrictions are a step closer to being introduced in Broome, after the conditions of the limits were officially agreed upon.
A release by the Shire of Broome this morning stated that the Broome Liquor Accord, made up of industry and community representatives, had reached an agreement on the limits, proposed for July this year.
It said outlets in the Kimberley town would limit the sale of takeaway alcohol to one carton of full-strength beer and three bottles of wine per person each day, or equivalent purchases.
The proposed restrictions are subject to the implementation of a takeaway alcohol management system and State Government approvals.
BLA chair and Shire president Harold Tracey said the agreement was the culmination of more than a year of hard work and commitment by members of the accord.
